Executive Leadership Program

Our Executive Leadership Program is designed to help you position your organization for growth through more effective leadership in a complex and ever-changing marketplace. Today’s organizational leadership requires clarity of thought, purpose, and action in the face of complexity, uncertainty, and volatility. Developing the needed clarity requires leaders who can inspire and shape the future, and who act as value-based role models.

Our program develops senior-level decision-makers to lead their organizations capably and effectively to achieve strategic goals and obtain organizational vision. The series is designed for CEOs and senior executives who want to promote quality, conduct continuous improvement, and achieve their organizations’ mission, vision, and values.

Peregrine provides a blended approach to executive education with virtual or in-person workshops, 360-degree assessments, and online, self-guided modules. The Executive Leadership Program is also referred to as the Chief Executive Institute for the Mountain West Credit Union Association.
